The prioritisation framework: making the most of local authority public health budgets

Public Health England has issued a tool to help local authorities make transparent, evidence-based spending decisions across public health programmes.

Local public health teams are facing increasingly complex and challenging decisions over what services to invest in and disinvest from. The prioritisation framework is designed to help local authorities conduct a systematic prioritisation exercise, by greatly reducing the burden and complexity of the task.

The approach is based on multi-criteria decision analysis, a recognised decision-support technique which has been successfully used in a variety of contexts.
